Grove - High Temperature Sensor

Introduction

3.3V 5.0V Analog

Thermocouples are very sensitive devices. It requires a good amplifier with cold-junction compensation. The Grove - High Temperatire Sensor uses a K-Type themocouple and a thermocouple amplifier that measures ambient temperature using thermistor for cold-junction compensation. The detectable range of this Sensor is -50-600°C , and the accuracy is ±(2.0% + 2°C)

Specifications

  • Voltage:3.3 ~ 5V
  • Max power rating at 25℃ :300mW
  • Operating temperature range:-40 ~ +125 ℃
  • The temperature measurement range is (-50 ~ +600℃)
  • Amplifier output voltage range (0 ~ 3.3 V) mv
  • Cold junction compensation (environment temperature measurement)
  • Thermocouple temperature measurement accuracy of + / - 2.0% (+ 2 ℃)

Platforms Supported

Getting Started

Here is an example to show you how to read temperature information from the sensor.

We need a Seeeduino V3.0 and a Grove - High Temperature Sensor.

Hardware Installation

A4 and A5 are the I2C lines of Seeduino. Plug the sensor to the I2C port of Seeeduino to read data.

Download Code and Upload

You can download the library from here

Then extract the library to the Library folder of Arduino, open the demo in examples folder.

Then upload it to your Seeeduino.

Open Serial Monitor and Get Data

Then, open your Serial Monitor, you can find the temperature in Celsius here.

Caution

The platforms mentioned above as supported is/are an indication of the module's hardware or theoritical compatibility. We only provide software library or code examples for Arduino platform in most cases. It is not possible to provide software library / demo code for all possible MCU platforms. Hence, users have to write their own software library.
